Jeremy is a businessman who was a rocker and Trainer in his youth. When he was younger, he used to travel a lot with his Ivysaur, as a Trainer. He stopped this when he was in his band since he became busy.
He had lifelong dream of entering a Pokémon Contest. He donned his rocker persona again, and entered the Silver Town Contest. He used his Butterfree during the Appeals Round, where it used a combination of Stun Spore, PoisonPowder and Safeguard. His wife Mandy and son Nicholas interrupted his appeal to convince him to give up his dream and come home. Jeremy replied with a speech about how he and his Pokémon spent countless hours training to achieve their dream and what it means to be a Coordinator. After this speech, the judges, fans and May cheered him on to continue competing. After seeing what this dream means to him, his family let him finish his run in the Contest.
Jeremy and his Venusaur, who was usually sleeping according to Nicholas, ended up fighting against May and her Combusken in the final round. Venusaur launched its powerful Frenzy Plant attacks, but in the end, May won the Contest.
The listing is of Jeremy's known Pokémon:
|Jeremy used Venusaur during the Battle Rounds of the Contest. It was able to get him past many opponents and went up against May and her Combusken in the final round. After a long battle, it was narrowly defeated as May's Combusken only had a point left on the bar shown on the screen. In Jeremy's flashback of his youth, it was revealed that he owned Venusaur when it was an Ivysaur.|
|Butterfree was used in the Appeals Round where it made some dazzling appeals until Jeremy got interrupted by two other people. However, May supported him to keep going. Despite the interruption, Jeremy was able to go on to the next round thanks to Butterfree's performance.|
